Violin, Viola, Cello, String Quartet - Advanced Intermediate - Digital Download
By Michael Jackson. Arranged by Austin Ralphson. Score, Set of Parts. 20 pages. Published by Austin Ralphson (H0.154693-750283).

Item Number: H0.154693-750283

The 'cello has the main groove work in this arrangement, maintaining the strong syncopation of the original bass line. The unusual introduction with the heart beat has been included, as has the glissandi effect leading up to the final choruses.

Depending on the suitability of the venue and performance, all four players have the opportunity to replace some of their off-beat stab notes with a Michael Jackson-esque "aaow!", as indicated in the score.

Works really well as a light pop number within a programme.
